Van Helsing - Review @ Gamebanshee

Gamebanshee has posted their review for the The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing.


Overall, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is a pretty entertaining game, especially for a $15 budget title.  There are some parts of the game that could work better, but the setting and the dialogue make it worthwhile.  In fact, about the worst things I can say about Van Helsing is that it's too short.  The campaign only takes 20 hours to complete, and once you defeat the final boss, that's it.  There isn't really anything more for a character to do.  All you can do if you like the game is create a new character and play the campaign again.

I played through Van Helsing twice, once with a "normal" ranged character and then once with a "heroic" melee character.  Those two games were more than enough for me to say that Van Helsing is worth the price of admission, but for others you might be happy to hear that the game also comes with a cooperative multiplayer mode, where you can play the game with your friends -- or random strangers.  In other words, if you enjoy action RPGs at all, then Van Helsing is an easy game to recommend.
